Original Antique Rim (Box) Locks Before 1865

1830 through the Civil War was an important time in the American lock industry.  New methods of manufacturing were being invented and companies were merging and realigning almost daily.  One of the most significant  developments in the lock industry was making a lock that was reversible - able to be used on any door no matter which way the hinges were mounted.
